Despite early morning rain, SCIG's 2nd Annual Tractor Parade went on! SCIG would like to thank all of the participants, organizers and volunteers who made this event possible. It was a great success with 35 tractors and 13 antique cars in attendance. Many activities for children took place, such as face painting, a tractor pinata, ice cream and free photos in front of an antique John Deere tractor. As always the chicken BBQ was a big hit - selling out of every chicken half!

Thank you for supporting Sidney Center and we look forward to seeing you at the next one! Please enjoy the photos below and feel free to save a copy for yourself.

Bugs in Barrels!!

Thanks to a successful pooling of resources and volunteers in the Hamlet - we now have decorative bugs in the flower barrels!

There are many to thank for making this project fly - which is another step towards beautifying our Hamlet even more and improving the quality of life for all who reside here. Without the help and support of everyone involved - making the Hamlet more exciting and attractive would not be possible.

The craftsmanship and creativity that went into making these bugs is absolutely top-notch. Thank you to all!

Special Thanks To:
Kay King
Ruth Barton
Helen Mayo
Tootie Hathaway
Ann Birdsall
